Unsafe Plastics

Many plastic containers and water bottles are made of unsafe and carcinogen (cancer-causing) compounds. Specifically, plastic products labeled with a number 7 are particularly dangerous. Read more about this.

For more infomation, take a look at the list of safe vs. unsafe plastics.

Stainless steel water bottles are a safe option, as opposed to plastic.

This is so helpful. I am trying to figure out how to store my bulk grains (50# bags). Do you use the food grade plastic buckets? or ?

Currently I use a mix between plastic buckets and glass jars. I have a friend who only uses 1 gallon glass jars. I may switch to that eventually, but haven't yet. I store what grain I can in the fridge and then the rest I store in plastic buckets and the like along with a bay leaf or two to keep the critters away.
